There is a need for a change in people’s attitude towards those with disabilities.
The Pacific Disability Forum(PDF) CEO Setareki Macanawai says unless attitudes change, people with disabilities cannot get anywhere.
“Even with good government policies, with funding, if attitudes dont change, it will remain a barrier.”
Macanawai was speaking at the opening of the new PDF office at Kadavu House in Suva yesterday afternoon.
AusAID has given PDF AUS$4.5 million to be used over four years to empower the capacity of people with disabilities.
